Ingredients

¼ c unpopped popcorn

Directions

Pour ¼ cup of popcorn in the bottom of a large microwave-safe container (not plastic) with a lid.

Cover, venting slightly.

Microwave on high for 3-5 minutes, or until popping slows to once every 1-2 seconds. Note that homemade popcorn takes longer than bagged popcorn to get going (1½ minutes for the first kernel to pop for me). Don't worry if it takes awhile—it's working.

Season and enjoy! I like mine with a spritz of Bragg's Liquid Aminos or a sprinkle of popcorn salt and nutritional yeast.

Result: I made this with Sainsburys own brand popped kernels but they didn’t really all pop - same happening in pan so it might be the kernels.
